Their 1995 follow-up, The Whole Truth, expanded the pop-R&B sound of their first album with rock and folk influences. A year later, Life, Love & Other Mysteries topped Christian charts and became a platinum best-seller. In 1998 Point of Grace returned with Steady On, which, as the title suggests, found them true to the course set out on previous releases. Christmas Story followed in 1999 with a mix of holiday chestnuts and original songs. Their next new album, Free to Fly, didn't appear until spring of 2001, but was preceded by the release of a rarities collection entitled Rarities & Remixes.
Point of Grace's next project was an ambitious one. They organized a series of concerts and conferences targeted at teenage girls, with ample time at each meeting for question-and-answer sessions. A companion CD to the conferences, Girls of Grace, was released in 2002, featuring a host of female Christian artists all interested in addressing the issues and pitfalls of growing up. The next year a double-CD retrospective, 24, was released with many of POG's hits and one new song. In 2004, a former member of Christian choir Truth
, Leigh Cappillino, replaced Terry Lang Jones, and the quartet released I Choose You, followed a year later by Winter Wonderland. The country-infused How You Live was released in 2007, and in 2008 (Floyd) Payne
left the group. Later that year, Tennessee Christmas: A Holiday Collection was issued.
Sticking with a more countrified sound, the remaining trio released No Changin' Us in 2010, followed by another Christmas album, Home for the Holidays, and the 2011 collection Turn Up the Music: The Hits of Points of Grace. Their typically uplifting and harmony-charged A Thousand Little Things arrived in 2012, and a covers album, Directions Home (Songs We Love, Songs You Know), which featured guest appearances by Vince Gill
and Ricky Skaggs
, followed in early 2015. In 2017, POG issued a double-album career retrospective, Our Recollections, to celebrate their 25th anniversary. ~ John Bush & Marcy Donelson, Rovi
